BEER IN THE PARK PALE ALE

Art Direction: Illustration & Design

Beer in the Park is a pale ale brewed by Stock House Brewing Co. in East Wauwatosa (Tosa) Wisconsin. I designed Stock House’s logo and was asked to design their first beer label. The label features common urban animals doing recreational activities in the park. I wanted to do something goofy, fun and colorful. The 16 oz. cans can be purchased at the brewery and in select retailers around the city.

We Never Met is a weekly podcast hosted by Wisconsin Native, Sam Kirekegaard. Every week Sam sits down with a local creator from the Milwaukee-area and chats. His guests range from professional soccer players, to chefs, to woodworkers, and yes, designers and artists. The interviews are engaging, personable, and cued into the creative culture that has been bubbling up in Milwaukee. I met Sam through his podcast and when he needed shirts I happily volunteered.

BAK TRAK MULTI-TOOL

Packaging

Inspired by aesthetics from the popular film, Back to the Future, The packaging of this multi-tool was heavily concept-based. What if a time traveler had a multi-purpose tool? What kind of packaging would it come in? Paying homage to the film, the shape of the package is similar to that of the DeLorean Time Machine's flux capacitor, a device used in the film to travel through time. Everything is hand-cut and the tool itself was vacuum formed using a mold and a press.

MAGAZINE EDITORIAL INTERVIEW

Editorial Design

My friend Michael Collazo is a talented guy; he’s a painter, printmaker, drawer and overall skilled artist. I wanted to interview him and his process. Why stop there? What would it be like to see his interview in a magazine? Not just any magazine, but Juxtapoz - the premiere fine arts periodical. The interview explored Michael’s process as a maker and a student of figure and form. I stayed within the look and feel of Juxtapoz’s design layout and style. This magazine cover is conceptual and has no affiliation with Juxtapoz Magazine


 

BULLSPIT BEER PACKAGING

Art Direction: Illustration & Design

Inspired by the craft brewery aesthetic, Bullspit is a conceptual American pilsner. The name is derived from a more acceptable way of saying “bullshit.” Aimed towards a male demographic and infusing humor with illustration, Bullspit captures the essence of enjoying a cold one while relaxing on a Saturday night with pals. Each label has a different bovine depicted with a different name and characteristic. When lined up side-by-side, it appears as if all 6 bulls are at one bar.
